Did You Know?


The episode opens with an obviously Catholic confession (since only Catholics practice confession and the confessor is seen praying the rosary). The character confesses to "breaking the 6th Commandment," and the priest replies: "You've killed someone?" In the Catholic tradition "Thou shalt not kill" is the 5th Commandment; it is the 6th Commandment in the Protestant tradition. See more »

Henry Scott: Two weeks.
Father Martin Keppler: Tell me your sins.
Henry Scott: I... have broken the sixth commandment.

the motet the choir is rehearsing . . .
24 November 2012 | by (Camarillo, California) – See all my reviews

. . . is Mozart's Ave Verum Corpus.

I wish they had a Catholic priest adviser for this episode. The following mistake would have been caught and remedied:

The church was not decorated in the way an RC church would look at the time.

There would have been a tabernacle on the altar.

The monstrance would not be on the altar without lit candelabra to either side.

No choir would think of rehearsing with their backs to the monstrance.

Men and women in a choir would be separated from each other.

Father Keppler would have worn his biretta in the top of his head, not toward the back of his head.
